Just after 2:00 a.m., the police and firefighters were called to the scene of a crash that occurred on Route 208.
Reports from the police indicate that a Honda Accord and a Kenworth 310 cab collided on Route 208 just south of Morlot Avenue. The incident prompted officials to shut down a portion of the roadway as they worked to provide assistance.
One person involved in the accident, identified as a 32-year-old woman, suffered injuries in the crash. She was transported by Fair Lawn Volunteer Ambulance Corps to Hackensack University Medical Center for emergency medical treatment.
At this time, the police in Fair Lawn are investigating the incident.

Truck accidents are particularly devastating due to the size and weight of these vehicles. Given the fact that trucks often weigh up to 80,000 pounds, they are likely to cause severe damage to anything they come in contact with. As a result, victims involved in accidents with them are likely to suffer severe and catastrophic injuries. Common injuries reported in truck accidents include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal organ injuries
- Loss of limbs
- Severe compound fractures
- Debilitating brain injuries
